The USA has a two-party political system.

One party is imperfect.
The other party is horrific.

If you are feeling hopeful after seeing a slide in The Orange Toddler's ratings, dont get too comfortable.

@InternetKevin @TonyStark There are words that have to be agreed upon if reality is to have any meaning. The reality is that Republicans elected Trump and that makes him the head Republican right now.

This all reminds me of the common saying that you’re entitled to your own opinions, not your own facts.

Trump appointed a megadonor with ZERO post office experience to sabotage the post office. Plainly, a traitorous, authoritarian move of a desperate despot!

Question to #heroesresist & friends:
Besides getting out to vote in droves;
What can we do about this?!
Suggestions please.

@InternetKevin @TonyStark @NatashaRomanoff We can't self-define what words mean or communication is impossible.

For example, this isn't a trout no matter how many times I say it is to me.
